Presidential candidate Ahmed Shafiq says he's confident of election victory but calls on supporters to delay celebrations until after official result to avoid clashes

Ahmed Shafiq has called on his supporters to delay their victory celebrations until the official presidential election result is announced on Thursday in order to avoid potential clashes with opponents.

Mubarak's last prime minister, who stood against the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi in the election runoff on 16-17 June, said he was confident of victory in a statement released Tuesday evening.

At a press conference earlier Tuesday, Shafiq's campaign team claimed he won the election by at least 200,000 votes.
